The 2019 Westwood Volleyball Tryouts are Thursday, August 1st and Friday, August 2nd. Tryouts will include both fitness and volleyball court skill testing. Included in fitness testing is a one mile run (under 8 minutes), height, standing reach, block jump and approach jump. Below is the TENTATIVE schedule for the 2019 volleyball tryouts. Incoming freshman should attend the freshman session, incoming sophomores should attend the JV session and lastly juniors/seniors/varsity returners should attend the varsity session. Tryouts are split into two sessions, some athletes may be asked to attend a different afternoon session other than their designated age level. These athletes will be notified after session one.
ALL Athletes MUST have an updated physical on file with the athletic trainers prior to tryouts on August 1st. Please DO NOT give physicals to the volleyball coaches, this must be delivered to the athletic trainers. If you attended the Westwood physicals in the spring then you are all set and they have your paperwork. If not, the athletic trainers will be available during team camp to collect physicals. It is best to turn them into the trainers in the morning so we suggest arriving around 9:00am to submit your physical. In addition to physicals there are several online forms that ALL athletes must complete. More information can be found on the athletic training website: https://www.warriorsports.org/athletic_training/Forms
Varsity - Seniors & Juniors
JV - Sophomores
Some athletes may be invited to attend a tryout session that does not align with their grade level. These athletes will be notified by email or in person by Coach Grant. See the schedule below for tryout times:
